Trinidad and Tobago Local Buying Program 

Woodside Energy Trinidad and Tobago has operations in the vicinity of the North and South East Coast of Trinidad and the island of Tobago. We consider these communities our Host Communities and are the main focus of Woodside Energy Trinidad and Tobago’s Local Buying Program.

As part of Woodside Energy's ongoing commitment to Trinidad and Tobago, a Local Buying Program has been established to target procurement with small local businesses. Woodside recognizes that small local businesses face different challenges when compared to medium and large sized businesses. This program is designed to support commercial activity with small businesses by creating a simplified procurement channel, as well as to facilitate opportunities for the development of business capability and capacity where needed.

Advance fee fraud scams
We never ask prospective suppliers for upfront fees.

We are working with authorities to identify Advance Fee Fraud Scams and limit their impact.
